Charming Griffith character home recently rebuilt

This beautiful character home was meticulously fully refurbished to the highest standards and sits elevated in the heart of Griffith. From the exterior unmistakably an original brick Canberra cottage but has been carefully extended and upgraded with sophisticated and classic styling still embracing the elegance of 1930's architecture.

Old world charm remains with period features such as an original wood fireplace in the formal lounge, timber sash windows, and extra height in the ceilings. A fresh contemporary feel however accommodates for the taste of a modern buyer, including an avant-garde Art Deco pendant in the front entry. Quality constructed the home blends harmoniously with modern luxury to create a residence with a practical flowing floorplan appealing to any family. Conveniently located the home is just a short walk from some of Manuka's best cafes, restaurants and boutiques as well as both Grammar schools.

Approaching the home, a bitumen driveway and brick path leads to the front door on a journey via beautifully handcrafted sandstone walls, mature trees and neatly manicured easy-care gardens. The single level four bedroom home provides versatility with the front wing comprising a formal lounge, front bedroom and study all with delightful garden aspects. A generous sized segregated master positioned adjacent provides a well-designed custom walk-in robe and an elegant luxurious ensuite with stone tops, double basins, separate shower and toilet.

At the heart of the home an open style kitchen with expansive stone bench top presents through double doors and combines with a generous sized uplifting family room bathed in glorious sun and light. The family room also has extensive custom joinery running the full length of one side providing excellent storage.

The kitchen is also filled with natural light and provides vast amounts of preparation space and finished with quality-joinery, Caesarstone benchtops, high end Miele appliances including integrated fridge and freezer and walk-in-pantry.

Full length sliding doors then leads out to an inviting outdoor entertaining terrace surrounded by sandstone walls and neatly maintained gardens, with motorized weather protected vergola overhead to suit all seasons and occasions.

A second bedroom wing at the rear provides two additional good sized bedrooms with built in robes which share a gorgeous luxury bathroom and also a rumpus with full length doors that lead out to the backyard and formal terraced gardens.

For the car enthusiasts the basement garage is a luxury including a large carpeted room at the rear provides endless possibilities including another rumpus, gymnasium, home cinema, or home office or massive teenagers retreat. A separate storage room is positioned next to this room.
